Barize's story

Barize has been photographed with her two cows. Barize is the mother of a 25-year-old child who is working currently for cash; he lives with his parents just like many grownups still do in rural families. Barize has always been doing agriculture/livestock to earn a living. She has cows, calves and a mule for transportation and she sells the raw milk to some nearby dairy farms;almost every household in the region of Korca keeps a mule or horse for transportation. Barize also plants seasonal veggies and crops mostly, and at the moment she needs some pesticides for them. Although planting is practiced here, livestock (goats, sheep and cows) is more. Barize’s village dates back to the 1920's and is characterized with cobblestone streets and five Greek Orthodox churches.
